Stitched With Love

Happy New Year from Stitched with Love.

Stitched with Love had its monthly meet­ing Dec.11, 2018. Af­ter cut­ting bat­ting for quilt kits, there was a Cookie and Sock Ex­change. Mem­bers had a great time eat­ing and ex­chang­ing Christ­mas socks. There was also a show and tell by two of the mem­bers. Each month, the club plans to host this, so mem­bers are en­cour­aged to find some­thing unique they have made, take it to the meet­ing and show other mem­bers what they can do.

In the eight months since club mem­bers started sew­ing to­gether, Stitched with Love com­pleted and de­liv­ered to Arkansas Chil­dren’s Hos­pi­tal, 401 quilts, 635 hats, and 325 pil­lows. Club mem­bers all should be proud of their hard work in get­ting this ac­com­plished.

The club also had a vis­i­tor from the Arkansas Demo­crat Gazette, Flip Put­thoff. He stopped at the Pea Ridge Li­brary and saw the club’s flyer on the bul­letin board and de­cided to come and see what Stitched with Love was all about. He took pic­tures of the group and a few days later there was an ar­ti­cle in the news­pa­per.

Have you ever wanted a feel good ex­pe­ri­ence know­ing that you are mak­ing a dif­fer­ence in the life of a se­ri­ously ill child? This is what Stitched with Love is all about.

We in­vite any­one in­ter­ested to come to the next meet­ing at 9:30 a.m. Jan. 15, in Mt. Ver­non Pres­by­te­rian Church in Pea Ridge. Come and check us out we would love to meet you.

For in­for­ma­tion, call Linda at 479-531-5381 or Cinda at 479-644-9760.
